Monthly Archives: September 2012

September is coming to an end (can you believe it?!) which means lots of coupons will be leaving us. I gathered up a list of ALL the coupons that will NOT be here starting October 1st. Take a moment today and go through this list so you don’t miss out. I bolded the ones that I think are important.

Welcome to another week of the Savvy Student Shopper’s thrifty finds! I “took off” this weekend from blogging to get some things accomplished. I think I was on my laptop twice the entire weekend (which is a huge for me!). Nerdboy and I conquered about 35lbs of apples (we’ll have a post on that later) and I hit the thrifts!

Monday’s are 25% off day at Value Village, so we went! I found a Pyrex Gooseberry refrigerator dish for $1.06 (after discount). As I’ve mentioned before, Gooseberry is one of my favorite patterns and is very popular/expensive in the Pyrex collecting world. It’s in great shape and a super price! Too bad it didn’t have a lid. I also found a Pyrex See ‘n Store canister! I’ve been looking for these for months, so I was ecstatic to finally find one. They have a glass bottom, with a plastic, decorated lid. They are great for holding dry baking ingredients, nuts, dried fruit, etc. It was $1.06 as well. Also at Value Village, I found a boy’s flannel shirt. I love flannel, especially when it’s already soft and worn, you know? Boy’s sizes still fit me and it’s cheaper. I got the blue flannel shirt for $2.24, after discount. There’s just something warm and fuzzy about a nice flannel shirt, leggings, and Crocs. I already have a boyfriend, so I’m not trying to impress anyone ;) My fellow couponers will get a kick out of this like I did: Value Village used a coupon insert (not even expired!) to wrap up my Pyrex!

I headed out to the flea market Saturday (2 of them) and found 4 Pyrex lids -no dishes! I got all the lids for $2.50 (plus I found $0.25 on the ground!). We often find dishes without lids, so I’m always looking out for cheap lids. Because of all the canning we’ve been doing, jars are always a must. I bought the 2 pint size jars for $0.50 each. I found out when I got home that the one says “Not for home canning” – Oops! I also got the jelly jars for FREE! They were in a box sitting next to the trashcan :)

My mom and I had a great time at the flea market this morning! I just noticed that I forgot to take a picture of the mums we bought. We got two purple mums for $2.50 each. Great for fall! I also bought a pack of 5 garlics for $1. All the onions were $2. The baskets, which will be used for Christmas gifts, were 3 for $1. A lady had 3 boxes of quart sized jars and they were just 10 cents a piece! I bought 10… but really should have bought more! The strawberries were $1/pack of 8 for $6. I had to pick through and get rid of the bad ones, but for less that $1/lb for strawberries, it was worth it! I washed, chopped and froze 12 cups for jam (a post on that later as well!). Overall, it was a great morning! Beautiful weather, great deals, multiple trips to the car because our arms were full, and got some Christmas presents and Fall decorating done!

I hope these posts inspire you to start thrifiting. It’s one of my favorite things to do! I believe in getting things for cheap and buying old, instead of buying new. It’s important to me to reuse/recycle things and putting money back in the pocket of the average person.

So, how about you? Any thrifting stories, comments, or questions to share?
